“The telephone is a good way to talk to people without having to offer them a drink.” -Fran Lebowitz


This antique-style rotary telephone was manufactured in the 1970s by American Telecommunications Corporation. It is labeled as a Deco-Tel Personal Telephone. This particular phone originally belonged to a Northwestern Bell customer. A sticker on the bottom of the phone reads, "This decorator telephone housing is your property. To assure quality of service, all working parts such as dial, cords and electrical components are the property and responsiblity of the N.W.B. Telephone Company." Another sticker reads "Northwestern Bell Set Ownership Plan Warranty Expires December 1, 1983." The model number for this phone is DWN 1330B.

Physically, the phone is in very good working condition. It was used by the same owner from when it was purchased in the 1970s until just before we purchased it, but there is no major evidence of wear (scratches, dings, dents, chips, etc). There is some very minor wear on the receiver, and a bit of thin gold "trim" (paint) has worn off around the front of the base (this is not easily noticeable - in fact, the only way we noticed was that the thin gold exists on the back of the phone). The phone measures approximately 12" x 9" x 6.75".
